EBSS2023 will be held from July 9 to July 15, 2023 at FRIB/Michigan State University.

The twentieth Exotic Beam Summer School (EBSS2023) will be held at the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB), Michigan State University (MSU), from July 9 through July 15, 2023. The aim of this annual school is to introduce students and young researchers to the various facets of the science of exotic nuclei including nuclear structure, nuclear astrophysics, fundamental interactions, and the application of nuclear science and technology. Through these schools, the research community will be able to more fully exploit the opportunities created by the next generation exotic beam facilities, such as the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB). The format of the school is unique: in the mornings, students will receive lectures from leading researchers in the field of nuclear physics with exotic beams. Lectures will focus on theoretical, experimental, technical and applied topics. In the afternoons, the students participate in hands-on activities, learning about the techniques and instrumentation needed to carry out experiments with exotic beams.

The EBSS series is supported by the U.S. Department of Energy, the National Science Foundation, and the following laboratories: Argonne National Laboratory (ANL), Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), FRIB/MSU and the Association for Research at University Nuclear Accelerators (ARUNA). The school, held annually, rotates among the various laboratories and is specifically designed for graduate students and postdocs (within two years of a PhD degree).
